SpamCop's Horde/Imp version?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what version of Horde/Imp SpamCop is running? Or better yet, if the version is displayed anywhere once a SpamCop mail user logs in?

I have not seen the version number displayed anywhere, but it would be useful to display it so as newer versions are released and JT upgrades then users that care will know.

That's funny .. I would have sworn I asked/answered that not too long ago. Had to go back through old e-mail, found the request you'd PM'd me, I'd sent to JT ... but .. that was only about Courier-IMAP as far as I can tell. Actually, I see that JT didn't really answer with a version number, but quoted some configuration changes that he didn't think anybody would be hitting. Looks like support <at> spamcop.net might be the key <g>

Might there be a hint in the last time that JT upgraded the webmail application? If you can extrapolate back to the most recent version as of 24-nov-2003 you should be in the ballpark at least.

A gogle search of the old archives brings us this: http://news.spamcop.net/pipermail/spamcop-...ber/011596.html

Hi, guys.

As you know, we updated to the latest webmail application last night.

This was posted when it happened on the main webmail login page.

P.S. The Google search actually found something I was looking for...yeah.

Most helpful Steve. From looking at Horde's IMP page it appears that IMP 3.2.2 was released on 2003-08-27, so this would likely be the version JT has setup currently. I also see that IMP 3.2.4 was released earlier this month.

My motive was not to ask for an upgrade, but for other reasons. Since IMP is open source software it is relevant to consider that some bugs SpamCop users experience when using IMP have nothing to do with SpamCop at all. It may be useful to peruse the known bugs of a given version of IMP to determine if a particular issue that a SpamCop user experiences is widespread. Not sure if they use bugzilla or what, have not looked... But this is mainly why I was wondering about the version.

Maybe a quick check of IMP's bugs might shed some light on the problem that people are seeing when you suddenly end up up in a different folder than the one you expected. It is possible that the source of the problem could be IMP and then the errors seen when reporting spam are only result of the IMP bug.

All threads I am aware of on this issue below for reference:

Wazoo -- Any chance of merging some of these threads as you think appropriate? It would certainly help track the problem over time.

Actually, I'll admit that I fell asleep while going through the 334 Bug Tickets on your referenced site. Haven't found the magic fix yet <g> I can tell you that in the past, I can recall getting a security update via Secunia, and JT was already aware of the problem that came out that week ... so I have the feeling that he keeps up with the status changes of this app ... but I'll get back to doing some more reading and comparing <g> .. Thanks ....

Fantastic! That means I helped Wazoo get some shut eye.

I was loooking through the bug list too and did not turn up anything. When choosing to display only bugs (resolved or otherwise) for IMP I got a list of 107 items. I also checked their mailing list but found no one describing similar issues to what SpamCop mail users are seeing.

I also noted that the current cvs is being referred to as IMP version 4, so apparently, after the recent v 3.2.4 the next release will be 4.

For reference, bugs can be checked here:

http://bugs.horde.org/search.php (pick queue IMP)

Also, the mailing list for IMP is archived by

gmane and can be accessed by http or nntp:

http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.horde.imp

nntp://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.horde.imp

I might submit a message to the IMP mailing list asking if anyone else has seen these symptoms ever.
